Save the lives of children from Hepatitis B

by STAM-T

Summary

Some five million children, born in Pakistan every year, face fatal health risks due to the failure of the government to include hepatitis B vaccine into the national immunization programme despite World Health Organization's (WHO) recommendation. Our goal is to vaccinate 500 Children in three months by spending just 10 dollars per child.

Challenge

According to the Pakistan Medical Association, one in every ten persons in the country is a carrier of hepatitis B. It also attributes hepatitis B as the basic reason of the 62 per cent of liver cancer cases in the country. There is no cure for Hepatitis B which makes prevention all the more important. Government of Pakistan is currently unable to pay for the vaccinations of infants and children. One child's vaccination costs 10 dollars. Parents from disadvantaged communities are unable to bear.

Solution

We have targeted 500 children to be vaccinated for hepatitis B in the slum areas of Faisalabad. This will encourage other NGOs to take initiatives for securing children lives against fatal Hepatitis B virus and parents from these communities will learn how to put pressure on local government for providing assistance in vaccination program especially Hepatitis B.

Long-Term Impact

By saving the lives of children and enabling them to spend healthy life, which will not only support there families but will also help there communities to work jointly for the rights of their chilren
